Mounting Your Shapes
Prepare Your Surface
The Nanoleaf Shapes should only be installed indoors and on a flat surface that can support the weight of the panels. Clean your surface to be free of dust, moisture and oil (1.1). The included Mounting Tape is NOT recommended for textured, popcorn, and porous surfaces (ie. wallpaper or brick walls) or for use on ceilings of any texture. (1.2).
Prepare Your First Panel
Designate a panel from your setup as the starting panel. Attach all needed linkers before you attach any panel to the wall.
Connect the Controller & PSU
Connect your Controller and PSU into available linker slots of the first panel. Plug the other end of the PSU into a power source to ensure that your setup is on and properly connected as you continue to connect your panels together.
How many PSUs do I need?
Each standard 42W PSU supports up to 22 Hexagon panels (2W per panel). Each Controller supports up to 500 Hexagon panels. Please check out our PSU Calculator for large installations.
Each standard 42W PSU supports up to 28 Triangle panels (1.5W per panel). Each Controller supports up to 500 Triangle panels. Please check out our PSU Calculator for large installations.
Each standard 42W PSU supports up to 77 Mini Triangle panels (0.54W per panel). Each Controller supports up to 500 Mini Triangle panels. Please check out our PSU Calculator for large installations.PSU calculator
42W: One (1) 42W Power Supply Unit comes with any Nanoleaf Shapes Starter Kit.
75W: For optimal performance, do not use both 42W and 75W Power Supplies in the same Nanoleaf setup.
Mount Your Panels
Remove the protective liner from the tape and position your panel into place. Mount your panel by applying strong pressure to the center (this should be where the Mounting Plate is on the reverse side). Make sure to rub your fist in a circular motion for 30 seconds to avoid any falling panels.
Make sure to leave end of the tape sticking out. This will allow you to safely remove them later from the wall.
Complete Your Setup
Attach all needed linkers before you mount the next panel to the wall. Continue to link each panel together and ensure that each panel lights up. Make sure the linkers are fully snapped onto the linker slot, the panels should be aligned edge to edge.
Screw Mounting Your Panels on the Ceiling or Angled Surfaces
If you want to mount panels on the ceiling or other angled surfaces, we recommend using screws instead of tape to make sure your installation is securely attached.
- Mark up where your anchors will go. Position a Mounting Plate in place and mark up the 2 holes with a pencil.
- Install anchors (may need to drill a pilot hole).
- Fasten Mounting Plate to anchors with screws.
- Once secured, attach the panel to the Mounting Plate.
Adding New Tape?
When you need to attach a replacement tape to your Mounting Plate, make sure the tape is placed between the two holes. Leave end of the tape sticking out. This will allow you to safely remove them later from the wall. Visit our shop for additional Mounting Tapes.
Need to Dismount Your Shapes?
Gently snap off the panel from the wall. The Mounting Plate will remain on the wall. With one hand on the Mounting Plate, use your other hand to pull the end of tape along the wall. Do not pull perpendicularly or at any other angle, otherwise you may damage your wall.
